With his lasers, visuals, punches, big sound, and thunderous body-piercing low frequencies, Marshmello won over a fiery crowd yesterday as he passed through the Llanos.

The audience, well acquainted with the artist’s repertoire, was treated to a regal explosion to the often syncopated rhythms forcefully deployed by the man with the marshmallow head.

The 30-year-old DJ from Philadelphia appeared on stage around 10:15 p.m. with footage of him spacewalking in an astronaut suit.

Two hits, three moves, streams of smoke and an explosion of confetti were released. It was a good hour and a half of electro and space sounds delivered at high intensity and in spectacular fashion.

“Are you ready Quebec?” Marshmello dished one after the other, often climbing the structure where his work implements were installed.

During back in time, the fans were solidly jumping on the Plains. During Here with mepeople sang, just like during the hit glad and at other times. Marshmello managed, throughout the night, to maintain an energy level of 10.

Like a good DJ worth his salt, Christopher Comstock provokes an adrenaline rush with excerpts, among others, from 7th section of the army White stripes, We like to party comeboys and Smells like Teen Spirit of Nirvana.

He abandoned, in the final part of his show, the syncopated rhythms, which were beginning to be a bit redundant, with a good version of Numbersingle he released in June, be nice with the voice of Halsey and go and come. It felt good, after all the fuss, to hear some sustained melodies before it ended with a series of firecrackers exploding.

As tradition dictates, during this electronic party, beach items abounded in the crowd: multi-colored pool noodles, beach balls, flying sharks and… a male inflatable doll.

It’s all very well, the flames, the smoke, the laser beams, but to be enjoyable, electronic evenings must first and foremost be made up of good beats.

What Oliver Heldens understood before the arrival of Marshmello. Okay beatshe had a large amount on his computer.

The Dutch DJ leaned on his single Koala with a few bars of Madonna, a version ofI was made to love you of kiss and The phenomenon Chic, creating a supercharged club atmosphere. He set fire to the Plains. He even danced in the corporate tents and in the VIP area. It’s good to say. It can.

We even got a remixed, faster version ofAnother Brick in the Wall Part 2 by Pink Floyd, a beautiful story Fugain and its Grand Bazaar and disenchanted by Mylène Farmer to end her performance. What else can I say… Oliver Heldens was flawless on the Plains.

“You’re amazing. I love you, Quebec!” he launched, behind his team. Let’s just say that the 27-year-old DJ from Rotterdam had set the bar very high for Marshmello.

Known as Millimetrik, Quebec City DJ Pascal Asselin had a blast when he performed on the big Plaines stage at 7pm to kick off the evening.

Intense, epic and memorable are the three words that came out of his mouth when he was asked to summarize his 35-minute stint on the boards.

“I had often dreamed of performing on the plains, telling myself it couldn’t be done and I was too young for it,” he said in a backstage interview after his performance.

Millimetrik had already purchased his pass to the Festival when the director of programming, Louis Bellavance, offered him to attend tonight.

“I didn’t want to miss out on Rage Against the Machine,” he said, now wishing it were possible.

Accompanied by drummer Jean-Michel Perrier and two dancers, Millimetrik offered several songs from his album sun drenched, released last year. Dominic Pelletier and Liana Bureau came to sing some titles in front of a good audience, the biggest of their career.

“It’s our home here. You have no idea how good it feels to be in your city and in this damned stage there”, he launched at the beginning of his visit to the boards.

We were able to see a Quebec flag in front of the stage and we felt a beautiful vibes configure during the child of fire.

Millimetrik began their performance with lots of drums and electronic percussion. A nod to his past as a drummer. Which gave a summer entrance, dynamic and great sound.

“I had all kinds of thoughts while preparing for this show. I chose to go with my color and be myself. What I do is lighter house with percussion. 10 or 15 years ago, when I was younger, I would have done like everyone else. I’m not saying this to brag, but I’ve been incorporating drum sounds into my music for 10 years. I believe in that,” she said.

With Australian Alison Wonderland’s performance canceled due to illness, fans of beats they were entitled to Oliver Lee and James Carter of the British duo Snakehips.
